Who is Ameesha Green?

Ameesha Green is a freelance book editor and writer from the UK. After university, she worked in HR office-based roles for 5 years and at a book publisher for several years. She travelled the world for a year with her husband—and just 25 items of clothing! Ameesha aims to make the world a better place through her writing and editing.

On our discussion with Ameesha, we focused on the following parts which we found most interesting about her:

What’s your background in?

After studying English & Philosophy at university, I worked in HR for 5 years. It was all pencil skirts and heels, but I found formal business-wear uninspiring, so I injected some personality into my office outfits! Then I worked for a book publisher where there was no office dress code—every day was dress-down Friday. After that, I travelled the world for a year with my husband. I only had a small rucksack with 25 items of clothing, so I really mastered the art of the capsule wardrobe!

I’m now a freelance book editor and writer. I help authors bring their nonfiction books to life, particularly self-help, business development, and management books—anything that helps people improve their lives, which is also my aim as a writer.

So, what makes you write about fashion?

I write about fashion because clothes can make people feel better about themselves. If you’re wearing clothes that flatter you, then you feel happier, more positive, and confident. But if you’re wearing clothes that don’t suit you, they can make you feel worse about yourself.

When writing for JF, my aim is to help people make fashion work for them—whether it’s dressing to suit their body shape, putting outfits together, or developing their own personal style. I also know that workwear can be boring, so I want to show businesswomen how to create interesting office outfits that display their individuality.

What is that you like about fashion?

I’m really interested in the psychology of fashion — why you wear what you wear. The clothes you wear say a lot about you and what you’re like as a person, whether you realise it or not. For me, the great thing about fashion is that it enables people to display their individual personality.

Your clothes show what you’re interested in and what you care about, from music to sports, art, culture, the environment, and more. They also show who you want to be and how you want to be perceived by others. Your personal style tells the world who you are.

What’s your personal fashion style then?

I’d say my style is classic-casual with a bit of grunge rock, because I’m laid back but unconventional. My wardrobe staples are cosy jumpers, cami tops, skinny jeans, and ankle boots (a must-have for any petite girl)! When it comes to accessories, I love backpacks, bobble hats, and Converse.

Finding a personal style is a journey for many people—especially because we’re influenced by the times we live in, from current events to music and trends, and the way our body changes. My journey was a childhood of 90’s fashion, a teenage goth, and a girly phase featuring lots of lace — most of which are better forgotten haha!

True! Do you have a current style icon then?

My style icon is the singer Lana Del Rey. I love how she balances vintage glam and casual rock. Whether she’s in a romantic dress with big curls or her street style of a band t-shirt and shorts, she always looks beautiful and unique.
